Subject: [Healeys] Spin-on oil filters

I’ve recently fitted a spin-on kit onto my 3000, the one that goes straight onto the block.
Which filters do you guys use? My kit came with a Unipart GFE 166 (CB6). I don’t know what the CB6 means. 
I gather that the GFE 166 has been superseded by the GFE 443.
So far as I can see it does not have an anti-drain back valve and it seems rather small for a 3 litre engine.
Ideally I’d like a longer filter with a valve and hopefully a hex on the end for easier removal. Can’t go wider or it will be into the starter motor.
Any ideas???
